Sketchmeet Spring Launch: Gawk at Historic Urban Sketches

Sketchmeet is back in action, inviting all WNY sketchers to come together to participate in the wonderful world of group sketching. The spring launch kicks off with an ode to old architectural sketchbooks. Sketches by William Sidney Wicks will be showcased and discussed. Wicks, in his early years, was an ‘architect in training’, traveling Europe in search of inspiration in the forms of classical design and the latest trends in architecture. The architect eventually went on to form Green & Wicks, which heavily influenced Buffalo and its incredible building stock. 

Urban Sketchers Buffalo is a group of artists of all disciplines and experience levels, making art on location throughout historic and beautiful Buffalo, New York.

This Sketchmeet will be held at the Buffalo History Museum (Buffalo architect George Cary, 1859–1945). Sketch artists are invited to sketch inside and outside of the building, which was built for the Pan American Exposition.

In order to secure a spot for the sketchmeet, participants are asked to pay a $7 ticket fee at Eventbrite. The fee is standard price of admission to gain access to the Research Library, which will be open on that day (just for sketch artists!)
